Acer is renowned for making quality monitors, not a bad choice there.

1) Newegg reviews are to be taken with a grain of salt..

2) The Sceptre has 1200:1 Contrast ratio, whereas the Acer has 800:1

3) Both brands are good

Just some food for thought

Yea hes right about newegg reviews. They count for something but the majority of the bad ones were becuase they didin't read info about the product enough.

I thought I just got a lucky stick before but i just got another green NR stick today after the price dropped down to 100 bucks and it also is a killer overclocker.

I have mine right now at 450mhz 4-4-3-9 timings.
got my ram to 4-4-3-9 at 430 mhz

woot
